Does any one know of a known working USB to serial adapter for linux 2.6.x? Don't want to waste money buying one just to find its windows only.

    Documentation for that adapter said that the drivers are in kernel 2.4 and later.

    That claims to work as well with drivers included on the CD (I'd assume).

    A quick google search for "USB serial adapter linux" or similar will yield many results.

    Good luck :)
  2. Thank you, when I tried googling it I just got pages saying how to configure them. By the way do you have any personal experience with the adapters you recommended?
  3. I do not have any personal experience myself; the only need I'd have for something like this would be microcontollers, but the Arduino I use has a built in USB to RS232 adapter :) It shouldn't matter much which you go with. They're fairly simple, and Unit A will work just as well as Unit B for the most part.

    Do you mind me asking what you intend to use this for?
  4. Main uses will include serial console access ( routers etc ) and for my gps as my current laptop no longer has a built in serial port. Thank you for you information.
